This year's episodes of the WHI continue to shake my theological tree... and it's a amazing but many in my family have also started to listen and are realizing the importance of having Christ crucified for sinners as the focus of our worship. I just wanted to continue to encourage you guys that what you are exposing in Evangelicalism is striking a cord with many many former fundamentalists and we are excited to find that Christ really can quench our thirst. We've been thirsty for so long!
Yesterday it finally struck me that I had been terrified that my daughter would not find Christianity or worship "fun" and that she would turn away from it... wow... that was really wrong. My wife and I decided to start reading and explaining scripture to her at night even though she finds it quite boring in comparison to her Barbie book. We asked her "do you like to eat?" She responded, "Yes". Then we explained that she needs to eat so she doesn't die... and so it is with her soul needing to eat God's Word so she doesn't die. Whether or not she finds him boring at 5 years old... Christ is our life. The manna from heaven.
The idea that Christianity has to be "fun"... where did that come from? We don't expect that at weddings, funerals, or graduation ceremonies do we? Or maybe we do now...
May the Lord continue to bless your ministry.
Love in Christ,
